FlightView Signs Fox Business Network
With a deal between FOX Business Network (FBN) and FlightView(R), viewers in more than 35 million homes nationwide will have access to up-to-the-minute information about flight delays as part of FBN's on-air programming. The agreement extends the partnership between the cable television network and the leading provider of real-time flight information to give consumers the actionable information they need to manage their travel plans - both online and on the air.
Airport delay information, already available on FlightView online and in airports, is a preferred resource for travelers looking for reliable up-to-the-minute information. Graphically pleasing and easy-to-read, the complete and accurate view of travel includes air traffic, weather and traffic congestion in and out of U.S. airports and is automatically refreshed and updated continually.
"We are extremely pleased to extend our working partnership with the team at FOX," said Michael Benjamin, CEO of FlightView. "Making this information available through multiple channels means Fox viewers get the information they want, whenever and wherever they need it - a great way to build loyalty."
The new offering comes in the wake of recent high-profile airport and airline surveys marking tremendous dissatisfaction with the industry in general. Immediate, accurate and comprehensive information - like that provided by FlightView - plays a major role in helping consumers get control over travel plans and make more informed choices about when and how they will travel.
"With FlightView's technology, FBN will be able to offer valuable, up-to-date information to business travelers," said Brian Jones, FBN's senior vice president, operations.
Programming is scheduled to go live by the end of summer - just in time for back-to-school and peak holiday travel season.
